The marketing automation coordinator helps choose and manage the software that allows the whole marketing team to understand their customers' behavior and measure the growth of their business. Because many of the marketing operations described above might be executed separately from one another, it's important for there to be someone who can group these digital activities into individual campaigns and track each campaign's performance.
“We’ve never had more on-call peers to advise us — from peer advisors to specialists and trend-spotters,” DeBroff notes. As we move into 2017, she predicts we will “entrench ourselves more deeply within the social web, immersing ourselves in increasingly diverse and broadening circles of discerning opinions. These influencers will powerfully inform and guide us in our consumer decisions.”
The new digital era has enabled brands to selectively target their customers that may potentially be interested in their brand or based on previous browsing interests. Businesses can now use social media to select the age range, location, gender and interests of whom they would like their targeted post to be seen by. Furthermore, based on a customer's recent search history they can be ‘followed’ on the internet so they see advertisements from similar brands, products and services,[38] This allows businesses to target the specific customers that they know and feel will most benefit from their product or service, something that had limited capabilities up until the digital era.
Een keyword mag twee maal voorkomen. Maar er wordt aangeraden om de keywords niet na elkaar te laten voorkomen. Dat zou immers de rode vlag kunnen doen opgaan bij de zoekmachines. En dat wil je ten allentijde vermijden. Bovendien is het bij korte titels beter om de tekst kort te houden en een extra keyword te vermijden dan om het keyword twee keer te hebben. Maar als een automatisch script zorgt voor de samenstelling van de title-tags heb je soms weinig keuzes :-)

Influencers: Letting others speak for you is sometimes more valuable than tooting your own horn, and audiences may find it more authentic as well. Creating a rapport with prominent industry influencers and having them share your content through their own social feeds streams your content to potentially thousands or millions of new followers. That means more brand ambassadors than you could have ever organically created.

Zoals gezegd vind ik Google Analytics soms een tikkie ingewikkeld. Daarom gebruik ik ook een andere statistiekentool: Clicky. We bieden dit product ook aan aan onze eigen klanten onder de naam “ProStats”. Clicky is misschien wat minder uitgebreid maar dat maakt het ook weer overzichtelijker. Bovendien biedt het functies die Analytics niet heeft (of daarin alleen met workarounds zijn te realiseren). Zo kun je bijvoorbeeld standaard zien of mensen bestanden downloaden van je website.
Om uit te zoeken waarom uw website slecht vindbaar is, is de eerste stap te starten met het vaststellen van de KPI’s en uw website-doelstellingen te behalen. Dit is het beginstation en tevens het eindpunt van uw seo-strategie.  Bij deze eerste seo-analyse houdt u zich bezig met de sleutelvraag: wat zijn uw verwachtingen van de inzet van seo en welke doelstelling heeft u voor ogen? Een veelgemaakte fout in dit proces is dat de doelstelling 'hoger in Google komen' is. Terwijl de doelstelling zou moeten zijn: 'meer online resultaat (uit organische bezoekers)'. Met andere woorden liever honderd bezoekers die converteren, dan duizend die binnen 10 seconden de website verlaten. Kwaliteit boven kwantiteit.

Simply put, search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of optimizing the content, technical set-up, and reach of your website so that your pages appear at the top of a search engine result for a specific set of keyword terms. Ultimately, the goal is to attract visitors to your website when they search for products, services, or information related to your business.
There are a number of ways brands can use digital marketing to benefit their marketing efforts. The use of digital marketing in the digital era not only allows for brands to market their products and services, but also allows for online customer support through 24/7 services to make customers feel supported and valued. The use of social media interaction allows brands to receive both positive and negative feedback from their customers as well as determining what media platforms work well for them. As such, digital marketing has become an increased advantage for brands and businesses. It is now common for consumers to post feedback online through social media sources, blogs and websites on their experience with a product or brand.[25] It has become increasingly popular for businesses to use and encourage these conversations through their social media channels to have direct contact with the customers and manage the feedback they receive appropriately.
Awareness: The potential customer is aware of your product or service. They’re still a stranger, but they’ve come to your website for a reason. They’re looking for something they need. At this stage you want to attract the customer by showing them that you have something they’re looking for. Use a lead magnet or call-to-action to give the customer a valuable resource related to your product or service (i.e: what they need) in exchange for more information about them like their email address, phone number, profession and current needs. Find out who they are and why they came to your website.

Cross-platform measurement: The number of marketing channels continues to expand, as measurement practices are growing in complexity. A cross-platform view must be used to unify audience measurement and media planning. Market researchers need to understand how the Omni-channel affects consumer's behaviour, although when advertisements are on a consumer's device this does not get measured. Significant aspects to cross-platform measurement involves de-duplication and understanding that you have reached an incremental level with another platform, rather than delivering more impressions against people that have previously been reached (Whiteside, 2016).[42] An example is ‘ESPN and comScore partnered on Project Blueprint discovering the sports broadcaster achieved a 21% increase in unduplicated daily reach thanks to digital advertising’ (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Television and radio industries are the electronic media, which competes with digital and other technological advertising. Yet television advertising is not directly competing with online digital advertising due to being able to cross platform with digital technology. Radio also gains power through cross platforms, in online streaming content. Television and radio continue to persuade and affect the audience, across multiple platforms (Fill, Hughes, & De Franceso, 2013).[45]

Een andere manier om te redirecten van de client-side is door middel van een client script zoals JavaScript. Zoekmachines zullen een dergelijke JavaScript redirect niet herkennen en dus ook niet volgen. Sommige mensen zagen zo de kans van hun leven om de zoekmachines te misleiden. Ze maakten een pagina vol keywords en lieten een JavaScript de pagina doorverwijzen naar de echte pagina. De zoekmachines zien alleen de originele pagina en ranken die dus hoog in de SERPS. Vorig jaar echter werd het algoritme Google slim genoeg om dergelijke redirects te herkennen en werden er een hele hoop pagina's uit de lijsten gebanned of omlaag gehaald.
Door de sterke opkomst van mobiel surfen en de mobile-first mindset is het logisch dat we meer nadruk leggen op Local Search. Steeds meer mensen gaan namelijk mobiel op zoek naar lokale ondernemingen, producten of diensten, om aan hun behoeften te voldoen. Het wordt dus steeds belangrijker om lokaal gevonden te worden, en dus te optimaliseren voor lokale zoekopdrachten.
Je kan natuurlijk alleen subdomeinen doorverwijzen met de CNAME. Verder is dit geen echte methode voor beginnende webontwikkelaars. Bij een slechte configuratie van de CNAME kan je zelfs in een oneindige lus raken of kan er voor zorgen dat je mails niet meer aankomen. Daarom is het gebruik van een CNAME eigenlijk niet zo aangewezen. Het wordt dan ook meestal enkel gebruikt wanneer een subdomein verwijst naar een nieuw domein.
Dat seo een zeer belangrijk marketingelement is, is bij de meeste ondernemers bekend. Iedereen wil immers een goede positie bij Google hebben, maar vooral ook deze positie behouden. Seo is een doorlopend proces dat complex en intensief is. In de laatste fase is het dan ook belangrijk om een keuze te maken. Wilt u voor een volledig seo-traject kiezen? Of maakt u de keuze om bepaalde, losse SEO-diensten uit te besteden aan een partner? Bij de laatste optie is het nadeel dat u nooit zeker weet of u wel het onderste uit de kan haalt. De keuze is aan u.

We weten al lang dat de snelheid van je website enorm belangrijk is voor jouw positie in de zoekresultaten. Google is hier vrij streng op, en verplicht je om een snelle laadtijd te hebben als je ooit op de eerste pagina wil verschijnen. En hou je maar vast, want in de toekomst gaat dit nog belangrijker worden. En dat heeft opnieuw te maken met de mobile-first index.

My recent blog post on digital marketing trends shows the latest innovations, but here we go back to basics to define digital marketing. This is important since for some in business, particularly more traditional marketers or business owners, 'digital' is simplistically taken to mean 'our website' or 'our Facebook page'. This thinking limits the scope and opportunity of what's managed and it means that activities that should be managed may be missed.

Een van de redenen om als MKB ondernemer aan de slag te gaan met inbound marketing is omdat je online gemakkelijk gevonden wilt worden door jouw doelgroep. De eerste fase van de inbound marketing methodologie, de Attract fase, richt zich op het aantrekken van websitebezoekers. Een belangrijk onderdeel van deze fase waarbij je bezoekers probeert aan te trekken via zoekmachines is Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Het creëren van content gaat hand in hand met SEO en mede daarom is het belangrijk om een goede SEO strategie te ontwikkelen. In dit blog geef ik je vijf stappen die je kunnen helpen om jouw SEO strategie succesvol te maken.
The role of digital platforms in supporting integrated multichannel marketing is an important component part of digital marketing, yet is often overlooked. In many ways, this highlights how important it is to break down silos between ‘digital’ and ‘traditional’ marketing departments. Online channels can also be managed to support the whole buying process from pre-sale to sale to post-sale and further development of customer relationships.

Deze tag geeft de taal weer die gebruikt wordt op de pagina. Dit is wel belangrijk. Op de meeste zoekmachines kan je de resultaten filteren op een bepaalde taal. Wanneer de website zelf aangeeft welke taal er gebruikt wordt, kan ze veel gemakkelijker opgenomen worden in die resultaten. Ook wanneer iemand zoekt op google.be zullen bijvoorbeeld nederlandse .org websites beter scoren dan engelse.
Unlike traditional marketing, content marketing has no sales pitch. It does not try to directly advertise or sell a particular brand, product or service. Rather, it aims to capture mindshare with valuable, relevant information that is educational, entertaining and/or emotionally satisfying. In this way, content marketing succeeds in creating interest and awareness of the brand and its offerings.
If you’re going to be putting valuable resources into growing your content strategy, then you have to make sure your efforts are actually paying off. The last thing you want is to spend time budgeting for content marketing and then discover later that you don't have any way of knowing whether your investment paid off. Many marketing teams struggle in this area because there are so many different metrics you could track to determine your content’s performance. However, before you can even begin to set these key performance indicators accurately, you must be crystal clear on your purpose for creating content and how it fits within your strategy.

Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic: Targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic all are aspects used by marketers to help advocate digital advertising. Cookies are a form of digital advertising, which are tracking tools within desktop devices; causing difficulty, with shortcomings including deletion by web browsers, the inability to sort between multiple users of a device, inaccurate estimates for unique visitors, overstating reach, understanding frequency, problems with ad servers, which cannot distinguish between when cookies have been deleted and when consumers have not previously been exposed to an ad. Due to the inaccuracies influenced by cookies, demographics in the target market are low and vary (Whiteside, 2016).[42] Another element, which is affected within digital marketing, is ‘viewabilty’ or whether the ad was actually seen by the consumer. Many ads are not seen by a consumer and may never reach the right demographic segment. Brand safety is another issue of whether or not the ad was produced in the context of being unethical or having offensive content. Recognizing fraud when an ad is exposed is another challenge marketers face. This relates to invalid traffic as premium sites are more effective at detecting fraudulent traffic, although non-premium sites are more so the problem (Whiteside, 2016).[42]
